Portfolio Positioning as of 03/31/2015

  • Lowe’s Companies, Inc., a home improvement retailer, is the portfolio’s largest overweight position, relative to its benchmark, the S&P 900 10-Year Dividend Growth Index, as of March 31, 2015. Our view is that better service levels and merchandising will likely lead to improved margins and profit expansion that are not currently reflected in the stock price.
  • The portfolio is also overweight, relative to its benchmark, in Chevron Corp., an integrated energy company. We do not believe that investors appreciate how well positioned the company is to benefit from the North American onshore oil and gas renaissance.
  • 3M Co., a diversified technology company, is another overweight position, relative to the portfolio’s benchmark.  We believe price increases will outpace raw material costs, leading to improved margins. We also believe there will be additional tailwinds from disciplined merger and acquisition activity.
